I guess the only thing you can do when you blow a 26 point lead and get called for two offensive fouls in the final 10 seconds of the game is to complain about the refs.
Maybe James forgot to look at his stat line, but he took a whooping 15 free throws in last night’s game, I suppose he thought he deserved to get the line 30 times? Also the Rockets out numbered the Celtics 31-24 in regards to free throw attempts, so I’m not entirely sure what James is talking about here.
Also he says “how else am I supposed to get open when a guy has two arms wrapped around my whole body?”. Uh James hate to break it to you, but here’s Marcus Smart on that second offensive foul that cost your team the game-
Now forgive me James, as I’m not a professional basketball player, but it appears Marcus’ arms are not wrapped around your body rather it appears that you are lowering your shoulder directly into Marcus’ chest. Again I’m not expert, but that’s what I’m seeing with my own two eyes.
